Be a Witness
“People today put more trust in witnesses than in teachers, in experience than in teaching, and in life and action than in theories. The witness of a Christian life is the first and irreplaceable form of mission: Christ, whose mission we continue, is the ‘witness' par excellence and the model of all Christian witness.” -John Paul II

The 88th annual Saint Mary Homecoming festival is set for August 9-10, 2013. Volunteers are needed especially for the following events:

·    Inside gambling, Instant ticket sales, set up and Sunday clean up

Over the next three (3) weekends there will be a representative from the festival committee at the rear of the Church after each of the Masses to sign you up for one of the many volunteer tasks and answer your questions. This event annually welcomes home to Saint Mary alumni from both the parish and the school. Old friendships are renewed, new memories made as folks gather to remember the special times they shared at Saint Mary.  

Each registered parish family can stop by the table located at the rear of Church and pick up their raffle tickets which will be alphabetically arranged by family.
